In this landmark study, nine of Brazil's leading urban scholars focus on the organized efforts of the urban poor to increase their control over the resources, decision-making processes, and regulatory institutions of the larger society. The offer a historical analysis of the growth of industry in Sao Paulo and the accompanying demand for more housing by an ever larger industrial workforce. They then describe the struggles of workers to win union representation, the efforts organized neighborhoods to improve their housing and protect themselves against a rising cost of living, and the successes and failures of the Workers' Party, which recently held the office of the mayor of the city.(Publisher).
